Hurdy Gurdyist And His Apprentice

St Mary's Guildhall Courtyard, Bayley Lane
Here we have a demonstration of a Hurdy Gurdy, as part of the Heritage Open Days in Coventry this weekend.  Our historic music specialist has no trouble engaging some help from this young lady.

I didn't know what a hurdy gurdy looked like either. Thought it was a much bigger thing. Very cool! Another shot that would have worked for People Watching!
